A long read. But it is a wonderfull feeling to have re-invented the wheel and it turns out round.


Thought I'd share it with you.

Since I actually read this article before going to sleep, I will say ... I read it.

If the take-away was to learn something about Leibniz's monads, hmm, I think I know how English-language students make fun of this Continental thinker's ideas ('infertile!').

If the take-away was "plus ca change". Well, yes I agree -- humans haven't really evolved on the idea spectrum much. The main problems of philosophy and attitudes toward them have been discussed for thousands of years (Leibniz's monadism is similar to Democritus's atomicism, epsecially the spirtual angle).

If the take-away wasn't to have take-aways, almost accomplished. :)
